Has anyone tried Spirit Airlines's $9 fare club membership ($60/year)? What do you get with your membership, and what makes it worth it?
It depends on a lot of things: where you go, when you want to go, how flexible you are...
The club is better as a convenience purchase than an advance plan. I think the best way to deal with Spirit's $9 club is to wait to join until there's an airfare you want, and can't get without the membership. Sometimes the money you'll save (compared to their non-club fare) will be a significant chunk of the membership fee, so that the fee will "pay for itself" if you use it just once more, and not be a significant loss if you don't.
"worth the investment" is highly subjective. For some people it may be, for others not. For me e.g. it wouldn't be as I never even come close to one of their destinations, let alone flying with them :)
So in theory you could save double the cost of the "club" just by your baggage fees, depending on how often and with how many bags you travel with them.
After asking the question - and not receiving any answers within the hour - I kept googling around and came up with this: http://www.elliott.org/blog/is-spirit-airlines-fare-club-worth-the-money-can-i-get-my-money-back-if-it-isnt/
So I'm not sure I will be buying into the club.
